pork chops with pineapple and rice... 40 minutes

the goods:

1cup long-grain white rice
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 to 4 bone-in pork chops
1 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, for serving

Cook rice according to package instructions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Season pork on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook until meat is slightly pink in center, 5 minutes per side (depending on thickness). Remove from skillet. Transfer pork to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium. Add pineapple to skillet. Cook, stirring, until pineapple is tender, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soy sauce.

Serve pork with pineapple mixture, rice, and cilantro.
